Shopping Around: March 2013



Fashionable Family

This hip new boutique right off Greenwich Avenue is a style seeker’s mecca, with a hand-picked selection of edgy-yet-elegant clothing and accessories plus plenty of personal attention for help in finding the perfect fit. Founded by Babe Rizzuto and her daughters Sophia and Tatiana, the roam collection features everything from skinnys in fun colors like rose metallic and embellished sweaters to sexy cocktail dresses, killer booties, snakeskin bags and furs. “We wanted to create a shopping experience that’s inspiring and fresh,” says Babe. “It’s about being more creative and eclectic. We don’t want to carry what everyone else has.” The collection is constantly being refreshed, but you can expect to see of-the-moment brands such as Blaque Label, Alexis, Torn, Young Fabulous & Broke and Jet Jeans in store. In the resort room, you can scoop up bathing suits from Brazilian and Argentine designers as well as cover-ups, lacy dresses and other finds that deserve a spot in your suitcase for St. Barts. Still, prices are reasonable, with dresses starting at $115. 19 West Elm Street, Greenwich, 203-625-0200; wheninroam.com

Blown Away

Having an amazing hair day just got easier—and more social—with the opening of do’s blow out salon. Designed to feel more like a comfortable home environment, this hair destination is decked out in Jonathan Adler-esque décor, with graphic blue and white wallpaper and pops of hot pink, like the giant hanging light fixture made from hundreds of pink curlers. Instead of the typical “stations” around the perimeter of the room, there’s an S-shaped center island surrounded by white leather chairs, encouraging clients to chat. “We wanted this to be a place where you can come with a friend and talk,” says Susan Jansen, who owns Do’s along with Marria Pooya and creative director Tim Casey, veteran of high-end New York City salons. Casey spends four days a week on site and trains all of the stylists. Ladies can pick a style from the signature Deja Do (smooth and full) to the beachy Un Do, or even Do Little for the younger set. Regular clients often book multiple blow outs each week, and some reserve the space for parties. Groups come for blowouts and champagne before an evening out, while teens have taken over the space for hair and makeup before a school dance. Says Susan, “It’s a way of taking a break from hectic, busy schedules.” 25 Lewis Street, Greenwich, 203-489-3200; doshair.com
